Usman Alkali Baba, Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has assured the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) of the police in its N5 trillion debt recovery drive. 

Baba gave this assurance when AMCON managing director/chief executive officer, Lawan Kuru, visited him at the Nigeria police force headquarters in Abuja, on Tuesday.

According to Alkali Baba, there is need for collaboration of all assistant inspector-generals (AIGs) and commissioners of police (CPs) across the country to assist AMCON.

He said: “Like I said, I remember when AMCON was created, we were told that whenever AMCON calls for support, we (police) must support them as a lead agency of the government in charge of internal security. All we need is a letter from AMCON,”

“We need to resuscitate that directive nationwide to all the AIGs and CPs to support AMCON within the ambit of the law so that the agency can continue to carry out their debt recovery effort, which is challenging because some of your debtors from experience go to court to challenge your activities just to waste time not because they will win the case.

“So, AMCON needs the police because as long as AMCON is concerned, it will continue to have litigations and enforcements that would require the backing of the police for execution.”
